I finished my YJ build, Lots of pictures!!!

This is what she looked like the day I got her. I named her Samantha.


First time I had the sway bar disconnected



Took her on her first romp



Replaced her faulty front shocks



Got her repainted with new decals, thanks to Pixel decals!





Got her stuck for the first time.



Flexin her out






Showin her off







I bought the YJ with a rebuilt motor and trans but a lot of the motor oil seals were bad, since those photos, I have changed the rear main seal oil filter adapter seal and the oil pan gasket. I have installed a push button starter with an RF FOB. Rewired and rebuilt the HVAC system, It now heats and cools very well. Installed a new muffler and catalytic converter and exhaust manifold. Replaced both front break calipers and pads. Replaced shot motor mounts. Replaced t-case output shaft seals. Did away with the ****ty vacuum posi-lock and installed a DIY posi-lock. Installed red light floor board lighting. And last but not least, Replaced all the b-joint and overhauled the searing system.

I hope you guys like the pics,

-Grant

One problem... your thread title... I finished my YJ build.

Nobody told me it was possible to ever finish these things! All kidding aside, the new color looks awesome.
